MADE BY PETE & HILTON CASWELL – REMEMBER (FEAT. JEM COOKE) (KCMTDL041)
London Based Made By Pete has been making waves in the house and bass music scene over the last few years, releasing a string of records on taste-making labels such as Defected and Toolroom. This new release comes with production support from Hilton Caswell, a South African producer and DJ who’s released on the likes of Simma Black and Phoenix Records, and runs intimate South London venue Gigalum which has been host to the likes of Basement Jaxx and Felix Da Housecat. Further support comes from Vocalist Jem Cooke, a Sony ATV artist currently touring with Wilkinson as part of his live show.
This release comes in the form of three versions of the EP titled track ‘Remember’. The original mix kick starts the package with shuffling 909 percussion and deep sub swells, driven with a soft synth melody and the smooth vocals of Jem Cooke. Next up is the Dub Mix, which takes a deeper stripped back approach in contrast to the original, making use of Cooke’s Vocals in a more subtle fashion with chopped up and filtered edits with warm strings then taking the track to new depths. Rounding off the release is the ‘Radio edit’, which condenses the main elements into a more punchy and upfront version, with emphasis on the mesmerising lead vocals of Cooke.
